HIPAA Compliance Policy

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) states that patient records and photos used in teaching must be stripped of all “direct identifiers” such as name, address, social security number, patient ID number, identifiable photographic images, etc., or that you have written authorization from the patient to use his/her directly identifiable health information in this way. 

The Office of Continuing Dental Education requires all presenters participating in a continuing education program, to verify that thier presentation materials meet these HIPAA standards. Presentation materials include but are not limited to: handouts, slides, PowerPoint presentations, videos, and reproduction of journal articles.
